Hi there  
HI there, so I've just joined the xxx_holic community. I've been infatuated with xxxHolic for a while now, and it's not going away, so I am looking for friends who feel the same way, or if not, I want to be friends too. Anyway I am looking for friend to maybe talk about (and make fun of) manga and  anime and fanfiction and beta and stuff. For reference, I am honest and a complete wreck in stressful situation and have entered fandom for three years now, but always hover at the outskirts so I really appreciate some handholding too.

And I'm looking for fanfic. I read Eat Your Heart Out and the Professor's Wife and Restoration and pengiesama's Christmas series but not much more. I don't trust the TVTropes page so much, so can anyone link me to a few good fic?Anyone show me a good author? Who maybe makes rec lists? And I swear there are so many little known, good writers on LJ and on FanFiction.net.

Welcome to the fandom! =D

That one's Himawari-centric. It's a great character study. Basically everything metisket writes is a masterpiece, but she's only written a few xxxHolic stories, and the other ones involve X as well. (Also, if you've read/watched any of the other series she's written for, check them out. Trust me.)

Here's a rec list. =)

This one's not bad too!

Thanks! The Himawari fic was absolutely breathtaking. I did read metisket's dgrayman fics but didn't check out her xxxholic fics for some reason. And All the Pieces since I love Waya, which turns out to be not really about Waya, and I remember refusing to track down the writer but saving the fic anyway.

Am slowly working on the list now.

http://mushroom18.livejournal.com/147066.html#cutid1 is a fairly long Doumeki/Watanuki recs list :)

Also, two good fics told from an outsider's POV (which are pretty gen): Misunderstood and Cold Cases (the latter is one of my favorite fics in the fandom)

And Querulous Approach, an excellent character study

Hope that helps!

Thank you! Have now set aside entire day.

I believe in red lists. I do, I do.

Anything stardropdream's done for this fandom. She writes a lot of Himawari, Himawari/Watanuki/Doumeki and female charas-centric fics o3oa

Thanks. I didn't realize so many writers liked Himawari, much less the Zashiki-Warashi! It's kinda really weird to see that.

Yeah! I'm friends with stardropdream so a focus on them is normal for me, but looking at the other recs I see there's a lot more than I thought. Even more so, there's a lot of stuff that's cool enough for people to rec it! It's awesome.
